Package name squirrelmail
Date August 22nd, 2006
Advisory ID MDKSA-2006:147
Affected versions CS3.0
Synopsis Updated squirrelmail packages fix vulnerabilities

Problem Description

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in search.php in SquirrelMail
1.5.1 and earlier, when register_globals is enabled, allows remote
attackers to inject arbitrary HTML via the mailbox parameter

NOTE: The squirrelmail developers dispute this issue, but the relevant
code has been reworked to be sure. The patch has been applied to the
Mandriva packages.

Dynamic variable evaluation vulnerability in compose.php in
SquirrelMail 1.4.0 to 1.4.7 allows remote attackers to overwrite
arbitrary program variables and read or write the attachments and
references of other users (CVE-2006-4019).

Updated packages are patched to address these issues.
